    Pump may be working just not hard enough! Need to know how much fuel pressure it has. Got gas i guess?
    First thing i do is to make SURE there is enough gas in the tank regardless of what the gauge says.
    Just a suggestion. But i have seen to many come in on a wrecker and be out of gas!

    yes there's gas in the car not foresure about the total pressure the gas line that comes from the filter to the pressure regulator I unhooked it and it shot gas across the engine to the fender so I would say the pressure is pretty good.it has new filter and pressure regulator

    Need to know if the injectors are pulsing when checked with a noid light. Also make sure TPS is not stuck at WOT triggering clear flood.
    May need to get a mechanic to scan test it for you!

    change your fuel filter. sometimes we forget to check this. if problem persists check fuel line.
